  3. 3. Introduction The world of the mobile phone market is crowded. The diverse products available range from the simple to the complex and every manufacturer offers the latest features. The market is crowded with Nokia, Motorola, and Ericsson fighting it out at the top. Also, several less successful brands like Samsung, Philips, Siemens and Panasonic are trying hard to make it into the top competitors' market share. So what made Nokia special from others? Why did customers choose Nokia? The answer lies in what the ‘brand Nokia’ means to customers. However, Nokia replaced all its competitors and it is now the number one brand in many markets around the world, effectively dislodging Motorola from that position.

  6. 6. Gillette as a Strong Brand To keep this strong brand presence, Gillette is very protective of the name carried by its razors, blades and associated toiletries. Hence, Braun is used for the company's electric razors and its oral care products are marketed under the name, Oral B. Gillette has created a strong brand image in totality - that is, all the different perceptions, beliefs, attitudes and behaviors customers associate with their brand. Gillette’s tagline, 'The Best A Man Can Get’, showcased in its ads through the years has created a consistent, intangible sense of product superiority.
  7. 7. What is Brand Management? Now, that you have learnt about ‘brands’, let us see what is brand management. Brand management is the process of building, managing and improving a brand. It begins by having a thorough knowledge of the term “brand”. Hence, brand management includes developing a promise, making that promise and maintaining it. It means defining the brand, positioning the brand, and delivering the brand. It is an art of creating and sustaining the brand.
